STYLE

en a young Dutch maiden's father for-
bade her to marry a poor miller, her
friends "showered" her with gifts to enable
her to many without the traditional dowry to
help set up housekeeping. Several years lat-
er, an Englishwoman, remembering the
Dutch girl's situation, gathered a group of
fiends to bring small gills to an impoverished
bride. Thus, legend tells us, bridal showers
began centuries ago.
But this is the 90s. Showers are no longer
only for the bride. Nor are the gifts relegated
to housekeeping. In this age of equality, it's
commonplace to shower the bridal couple
with gifts to please them both. And that cre-
ates the perfect opportunity for an evening af-

romance.
For a fun buffet dinner theme, plan a Ro-
mance Round-The-Clock Shower. Write a dif-
ferent hour of the day or night on each
invitation and request the guests bring a gift
appropriate for that hour. For example, for 9
a.m. they might choose a breakfast tray, bath
towels or His and Her robes; for noon, a pic-
nic basket or tickets to a matinee; for 6 p.m.,
a pretty table cloth, ice bucket with a bottle of
champagne or candle sticks and candles. Dec
orate the table with a collection of clocks, hour
glasses, favored time pieces, hearts, flowers,
lace, beads or fruit. Or, glamorize tree branch-
es, leaves and berries by spraying them with
gold spray paint
Begin the evening with Constant Com-
ment Champagne Punch, a fabulous com-
bination of orange and spice tea, a splash of
orange liqueur and bubbling champagne. A
tea-flavored ice mold brimming with fresh
fruit looks terrific and ensures the punch is
never diluted.
The star of the buffet is a meat-pasta entree,
Veal and Orzo in a Garlic Crumb Crust,
which is assembled, (even frozen), baked and
served in the same dish. Savory chunks of
veal, mushrooms and pearl onions in a de-
